FIFA pushes back second round sale of World Cup tickets

Oct 30 2013, 12:18am CDT | by IANS

Rio de Janeiro, Oct 30 (IANS) The Federation International de Football Association (FIFA) has announced it was pushing back the date of the second round of ticket sales for the 2014 Brazil World Cup games to Nov 11, because it had yet to notify all the winners of the first-round lottery.

Rio de Janeiro, Oct 30 — The Federation International de Football Association (FIFA) has announced it was pushing back the date of the second round of ticket sales for the 2014 Brazil World Cup games to Nov 11, because it had yet to notify all the winners of the first-round lottery.

The world football governing body said in a statement Tuesday the date had to be pushed back six days to give the initial lottery participants a chance to find out their status, in case they needed to re-apply, reported Xinhua.

FIFA Marketing Director Thierry Weil, who announced the new date, said it was important for those who participated in the first round to know whether they had obtained their tickets or not, before the second round begins, to ensure "equal opportunity" among the participants.

"Since the applications for the next round will be processed in the order they were received, it is absolutely necessary for all of the applicants in the first round to find out if their request was accepted when we resume the sales," he said.

In addition, the FIFA said it needed the supervision of the Brazilian government, as host of the sporting event, in organizing a special lottery for fans with limited resources.

The government of Brazil's President Dilma Rousseff designated officials from a state bank and the sports ministry to oversee the lottery, which is to take place in the city of Manchester, England.

According to the FIFA, the first phase of the lottery will decide who gets one of more than 300,000 low-priced entrances to be distributed among the elderly, students and recipients of a scholarship program.

The FIFA said all of the first-round applicants will be notified by Nov 10.

After Decades of Being the Same, Cup Holders Are Drastically Changed to Finally Make Sense - Beverages Are No Longer Held from the Bottom in Stationary Cylinder Openings
The Maksimatic Spill-Preventing Cup Holder uses centripetal force to prevent beverages from spilling utilizing a 360 degree swiveling joint which allows the cup holder cylinder openings to tilt up to a 27 degree angle full-circle. No other cup holder in the world achieves this let alone is designed to do anything like this. The Maksimatic is as reliable as the laws of physics themselves and changes a design used for decades. This seems to be the next logical step in cup holders.
